Aston Villa striker, Tammy Abraham has taken a dramatic u-turn on his initial thought about leaving the English Championship club, as he has sensationally turned down an offer from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Footballlive.ng can report that, before Tuesday, all talk had been on Abraham joining Carl Onuoha Ikeme’s former club, which had even set him up for a potential clash against Manchester City on Monday, but he has now opted to stay put at Villa Park.
Details of the report out of Queensland indicate that Abraham turned down the chance to join Wolves on loan, because he wants to see out the remainder of the season with Aston Villa.
However, it is also due to the fact that Abraham’s parent club, Chelsea are adamant they will not sell the star in this transfer window and told the 21-year-old to choose what he wants in the second half of the term.
Chelsea have a recall clause in Abraham’s loan deal, which allows them to alter the agreement with Villa this month, but The Blues opted not to play their cards.
So, instead of heading back to the English Premier League with Wolves, Abraham has decided to stay at Villa Park, and try to help the club clinch promotion back to the top flight.
Abraham, who has scored 16 goals for Villa in the Championship since joining them on loan in the summer, did not take part in training with his teammates on Monday.
However, the Nigerian-born striker, who has 21 appearances for Villa this season, including three in his last two games, is understood to have returned to the club’s Bodymoor Heath complex on Tuesday morning.
